A-Camping We Will Go is the 8th episode of The Brady Bunch TV series, and the eighth overall episode in the series. Written by Herbert Finn and Alan Dinehart and directed by John Rich, the episode premiered on ABC-TV, airing on November 14, 1969.
Mike and the boys have gone camping once a year for several years and Carol and Mike insist on a camping trip for all the family. The girls do not want to participate, and the boys do not want them along either. The family trip starts out a failure, but things then improve.
Mike and the boys' annual camping trip will be different this year in that the whole family is going, including Carol and the girls who have never been camping before. The boys confide to their father that they don't want the girls to go. The girls confide to their mother that they don't want to go. All the kids feel camping is more a boys' activity. However, each parent tells their respective same sex offspring that they will all be going for the sake of family togetherness, no ifs, ands or buts. As the camping trip progresses, the boys and girls get into one misadventure after another as they try to bridge their camping sensibilities, with the occasional attempt to maintain that divide. The primary question still remains if Mike will get his wish of family togetherness by the end of the trip.
